    Surprised to see them carry through with this.

    It's a very good day to be a Patriots fan. Honestly thought he might be gone before the offseason was over. I can live with paying big money for the best nose tackle in football right now.

        This man would speak the truth, if Ngata played NT.

          This doesn't surprise me at all. The Patriots are usually great at evaluating the worth of their own potential free agents. Wilfork is the best nose tackle in football and he's not yet 30 years old. Just like the re-signings of Randy Moss and Richard Seymour (in 2006), I figured something would get done. I may be missing someone, but have the Patriots ever let a free agent walk who ended up being great somewhere else?

            This also means we don't have to draft Terrence Cody. Very good day.

              Asante Samuel, Curtis Martin (Pre-BB and not really by choice). But yes, generally they are very good at evaluating their current players.
              Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Texas Longhorns

                  wasn't he playing NT with Gregg out?

                      Didn't some other scrub get snaps before him? And didn't he barely get on the field at all...

                          This makes me very happy, draft day will be a lot simpler now. He is the best NT in the league.

                            Asante is the only exception.

                              Aren't Eagles fans always complaining about him being inconsistent and the worst tackler ever? Plus hasn't Sheldon Brown been their best corner for less money? Asante isn't bad, but hes not a super star either. Lawyer Milloy is probably the most succesfull player that left the Pats since BB took over the team. I don't think Curtis Martin ever played for a BB coached Pats.

                              There have been a lot of Pats guys that weren't retained that left and did nothing much at all. Deion Branch, David Givens, Tully Banta-Cain, etc.
